The Douglas County Chamber and Douglas County Sentinel are pleased to announce the 2017 Small Businesses of Excellence. These nine businesses are recognized for successful operations and growth as well as service in their community. The Small Business of Excellence Awards were held on July 18th at the GreyStone Power Luncheon.
The Chamber is proud to recognize the important role that small businesses play in Douglas County and its economy. They recognize the work of the Small Business Committee who created the Small Businesses of Excellence designation from what was previously the Small Business of the Quarter Awards. The nine recipients are then eligible for the Small Business of the Year Award given at the Annual Awards Banquet in February.
In the seventh year of offering the Small Businesses of Excellence, the Chamber received over 20 nominations for Chamber member businesses. After being nominated by the community and their peers, each company completed a thorough application covering company information, growth, community involvement and adversity among other criteria. An independent panel of judges composed of business professionals and community leaders reviewed the applications, met to discuss their findings and make their selections.
